Danish homicide investigator ‘Simon’ Simonsen and his team unravel the motivations and actions that led to the gruesome deaths of five men and a media storm about abused children.

A new mystery series recommended by a friend that’s sure to grow on me. We’ll see after I read two more. Not the best translation.

In the scheme of Scandinavian detective stories, well down the list. I expected more.
